A metro organization that helps the homeless is preparing to feed thousands of people Tuesday.
Hope Ministries started the Monday short of donations needed to provide their annual Christmas meal.
However, metro residents opened their hearts and wallets, providing items such as milk, rolls, and desserts.
29 delivery teams will bring the meals to metro families on Christmas morning.
Meanwhile, a team of about eighty volunteers will prepare meals and decorate the Hope Cafe for the hundreds planning on stopping by.
“We’re the family for people with no-where else to go. They will be able to sit down and be served a meal. We’re not only going to feed the tummy, but the soul at the same time,” said David Burrier, the Chief Development and Community Relations Officer for Hope Ministries.
Hope Ministries will begin serving its annual holiday meal from noon to 1:30 Tuesday.
People in need of a free holiday meal can stop by the Hope Cafe at 1310 Sixth Avenue.
